A policy dialogue is a reflective process that involves people from different interest groups who discuss an issue in which they have a mutual interest.
Socio-economic transformation is commonly defined as a process in which an increasing proportion of economic output and employment are generated by sectors other than agriculture.
Our Mission& Vision
To uplift the voices of women and youth in peace process building in the Horn Region. We emphasize local community development, to alleviate new voices and leaders for human rights through research on peace matters to go hand-in-hand with women participation and empowerment in the Horn region.
Where We Came From
The HPI arose due to the increasing realization that conflicts are costly and devastating not only to the generations involved but also to their descendants. Conflicts in the region have failed to be won by force of arms over the years.
The conflicts have been assigned individuals to resolve them. Against this background, the need for an institutional framework for mediation gained currency as the way forward.
HPI aims to increase awareness on the benefits of mediation and increase capacity to negotiate, dialogue, early warning, determine and provide ways of avoiding conflict.
Our Managing Director
Filsan Ahmed is a global renown public policy leader, peacebuilding and gender equality expert and practitioner.

Peace Building & Mediation
